Feed Your Mind
A healthy life starts with a healthy mind.
Thought Vitamins is a site dedicated to the pursuit of healthy thinking. Not a self-help theory, ideological forum, or collection of happy thoughts, but a light exercise regiment to expand your thinking.

Opinion — Matt Faye

Yes, Thought Vitamins are fun, entertaining, informative, thought provoking and come in lots of tasty shapes and flavors. More importantly, they work.
Your mind is you: conscious thought, rational thinking, sound judgment and the experience of enjoying popcorn at a movie. These are mind things.
Mind things can be every bit as healthy or unhealthy as body things. Mind healthy things are not plants, minerals, medications or physical exercise. They are thoughts. Thoughts of truth, science, love, problem solving, analytics, perspective and contemplating our human stories are healthy mind things. The mind craves them, seeks them and eats them up. Thoughts of lies, selfishness, apathy, isolation, hate and fear are unhealthy mind things.
Thought Vitamins are simply this: Bite-size essays with a commitment to our reality, to inspire healthy thinking that nourish the mind. They are not just "happy thoughts". Although there is no scientific evidence that happy thoughts will do any harm, they are not enough. The mind needs to be challenged, expanded, exercised and expressed. These things make us feel worthy, valuable, engaged, optimistic and yes, happy. Not only that, because thoughts drive our actions, healthy thoughts will undeniably improve the practical outcome of our lives.

Weird All and the Gregory Brothers have teamed up to give us a much needed dose of humor vitamins, and in the process actually added some clarity to a chaotic debate. Cheers!
